Question about Goldstar R1203 Air Conditioner

2 Answers

Everything works on the unit but it does not get cool

I had a refrigeration repair man look at it and says that you cannot fix because you cannot get the coolant and there is no port to fill it.

You can put in a bullet piercing valve in the low side refrigerant line,then if its r-22 you need to be e.p.a. certified,if its r-134a then you can legally top it off,but be careful so you don't add to much when you don't have any manifold gauges

You can purchase a bullet piercing valve port to install the refrigerant your unit takes. Refrigerant is available; however, some are much more expensive than others and it is necessary to use the exact type of refrigerant your unit was designed for. The prices of R12 and R22 are astronomical. If your window unit uses either of these two refrigerants, you would be well advised to invest your money in a new unit rather than repair what you have.

Though this is probably not news you wanted to hear, I hope the information is very helpful to your decision-making, moving forward. :-)

Own an old GE compact that has fridge and freezer that I use in my "man cave". Not cooling much now and I cleaned everything back to bottom. No signs of leakage? Any suggestions?

Amana refrigerator not cooling


My concern is that the refrigerator is showing a more serious problem. The fact that the service man is not using the time to fix the refrigerator would have me angry. If the refrigerator is under warranty and you are losing food is another reason to complain! Being under warrant I cannot offer advice other than get on the phone and express your complaints to the distributor and the manufacture. Usually this will help get your repair issue motivated. Let me know what happens, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool side by side not staying cool


make sure that everything is running in it - the compressor - any fans and that all airflows are ok.

If all is working then it is a refrigeration problem. low gas, blocked pipes or filter. This will have to be looked at by a refrigeration mechanic
